The Canyon Lake Yacht Club will be hosting a party for its members and their guests on the lake on Sunday, September 10, in honor of its favorite Margaritaville guy, Jimmy Buffett.

Boats will meet at the Holiday Harbor docks at 6:15 p.m. for a time of finger food sharing, libations, and meeting new and old friends. After an hour of socializing, boats will take a slow cruise around the main lake and then tie up in Catfish Cove to listen to all the great Buffett songs.

Attendees are asked to bring a few flowers to spread on the water in honor of Buffett’s memory and as a way of thanking him for all the good times the Yacht Club has shared with his music. Spreading flowers on the water has become the new custom for the Yacht Club to honor passages of life.

“If you like Jimmy Buffett, like to party, can imagine life on a tropical island, or just want to escape for an evening, come join the fun,” Commodore Ron Wilbur said. “Bring margaritas, flowers, and finger food to share, dance, sing, swim, splash, and watch out for volcanos.”

Guests who don’t own boats are welcome to board one of the Yacht Club boats. “At least a third of our members don’t have boats, but Yacht Club members are exceedingly gracious and welcoming, so everyone manages to get a boat ride and participate in the party, Commodore Wilbur said. “As Buffett pronounced in one of his songs, we all need ‘changes in latitude, changes in attitude.’ We have a party attitude and on Sunday we’ll have it on the water.”
